You should have an accessary position on your fuse panel.....you can get your power from there.

What car is this? Does it have speakers currently installed?

Typically, for newer radios, you will need a constant power feed (for the clock / memory) and a switched power feed (as Henry stated). Simple enough to run from the fuse block if you need to. Then ground it to a good location and wire up your speakers.

Doc here,

Well, to install a radio in a Kabota Tractor..you must weld brackets to the dash panel..bolt and strap the radio to it , run primary and secondary power and ground to the unit , and duct tape a speaker to it as well as a long wire antenna..Does this help at all.....??

I Think not...

Without information, that's the best answer I can give..

NEED to know, What Car, Stock or aftermarket system, Internal or External amp required..Dash kit or stock fit, remote or full dash radio package, Antenna in the Windshield, or none at all, or retractable, Speakers, mono, stereo, or 4,6,or 8?

Most Cars have a "Stubout" under the dash for a radio even if not factory installed with MOST of the wires you will need to get started..

Provide more, we can give you more..

Doc

Most radio delelte cars still have the wiring for the radio in them.

The car or truck maker did not make a radio delete specific wiring harness for their vehicles.

So with this in mind all you have to do is locate the un-used wire to hook in to, to power up any radio you install.

Now speaker wiring, you may be at a loss here? Meaning you'll have to install these wires. (sorry)
